(Energy and Environmental Engineering)
Two-year Master of Science course
Different forms of energy are used in diverse ways in industry, in private households and in transport. Consequently, energy now plays as important a role in everyday life as water. Increasing attention is paid to the sustainable use of energy without imposing long-term strains on future generations. This cross-linked training in the basic principles and current problems of energy and environmental engineering meets this concern. One increasingly important issue is that of reducing CO2 emissions responsible for the greenhouse effect. To this end, possibilities to save energy are explored and increasing use is made of regenerative energies. Since fossil fuels will continue to be needed for a long time to come, efforts are made to reduce CO2 emissions by increasing efficiency and by capturing the CO2 emitted and storing it underground. This process, especially, necessitates close cooperation between energy engineering and environmental engineering.
The aim of the Energy and Environmental Engineering course, which is supervised jointly by the schools of Process Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, is to qualify students to solve these problems by process engineering. The course is geared to practical professional requirements, which result from technical, economic, ecological and social developments.
The Master program in Energy and Environmental Engineering includes broad-based studies in process engineering and mechanical engineering, along with academic consolidation. Students are also required to complete compulsory elective courses applying process engineering to relevant processes. Students also undertake industrial internships. The Master program concludes with the Master’s thesis.
All admission modalities are laid down in the Satzung über das Studium (Statutes on Studying at the TUHH).
